  • ¾ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1) Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Line an 8-inch-square metal baking pan with parchment paper, allowing it to overhang the edges. Coat with cooking spray.

2) Whisk flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, salt, nutmeg and cloves in a medium bowl. Whisk sugar, pumpkin, egg, butter, oil and vanilla in a large bowl until well combined. Add the flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour into the prepared pan and spread in an even layer.

3) Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 1 hour before cutting into squares.
